LiveJournal Client Discussions


Greetings, I just joined up here, mainly because I have yet to find a client that meets my expectations, mainly because I haven't written one, and as we all know, I am god, and anything I don't do is substandard.

Or something like that. Mainly it's because I've been sitting, collecting dust teaching programming instead of doing programming, and I need to get back into shape, and I figured this was a good task for me to undertake.

I'm currently plotting a simple client written in VB (why VB? Because it's easy, and I'm teaching a class on it next week), and it will involve an activeX dll to handle all of the protocol manuvers, so that activex dll can then be used in other client applications, or converted into a COM object, and used on a server platform.

That's the goal anyway.

Now if I only could get the winHTTPrequest object to behave like I think it should..

Welcome and good luck! Writing a client isn't the most interesting thing to do in the world but it's a fun endeavor and I've enjoyed most of my time working on LochJournal. Good luck!

Dude, LochJournal is my example for the features mine has to support. Hell, it's only because of LochJournal that I started using friend groups.

I've managed to miss LochJournal, where can I download it from?

It's on the clients download page under the Windows platform. About the third one down, I think. The link for the download is actually in the journal for the client, but I can't remember it right off the top of my head right now. :)

I've been trying to figure out how to turn wordjournal into a simple VB client. I don't know anything about network programming though. Would you mind sending me your source code to look at when you're finished?
